*UPDATE TENDER CALLED OFF* STROUD MP Neil Carmichael has called on the district council to scrap plans to put the town’s award winning farmers’ market out to tender.
Mr Carmichael’s intervention came as the current operator said he would consider walking away from the business if Stroud District Council pressed ahead with the controversial tender process.
Since announcing that interested parties would be invited to bid for the popular market, the authority has faced a fierce backlash, with stallholders and shopkeepers raising fears about its long-term viability and the future of the town centre.
